Unbeaten boxing champion Tyson Fury is just hours away from defending his WBC heavyweight title against fellow Brit, Dillian Whyte.
It’s arguably the biggest event in the British sporting calendar so far this year, with people flocking to screens wherever possible.
A very lucky 94,000 will be cramming themselves into the legendary Wembley Stadium to watch the fight live. Tickets have been selling on Ticketmaster’s resale page for as much as £2,500.
The hype and anticipation ahead of the fight has been building, with the two fighters opting for very different approaches. Fury has been his usual outspoken self, while Whyte has remained relatively silent in the face of Tyson’s noise.
Fury is known to have been in a strict training camp for the past eight weeks, with a remarkable diet ahead of the showpiece showdown that has included black pudding and fish and chips.
Whyte meanwhile has suggested that his dad could fight Big John Fury following an altercation between his brother and the father of The Gypsy King as sparks flew at the face-off.

When is Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte?
Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte will take place on April 23, 2022.
The fighters will touch gloves and the first bell sound at 10pm UK time, with the undercard due to begin at 6pm.
Wembley is going to be the venue of Fury’s first fight in the UK for four years and is expected to be home to a suitably boisterous and excitable atmosphere to match the occasion.
Fury has been preoccupied with Deontay Wilder, the former WBC heavyweight champion who Fury stopped twice in their the pair’s epic trilogy bout.
The first fight between the two ended in a split draw, setting up Fury to go on to defeat his rival in the second and defend the return challenge in the third. Now it is Whyte’s chance to lay claim to the in-demand prize.
